Well it was a cut-through, edgy and engaging program of writers, readers, academics, and performers this year! I am sure you will agree. The weather was stellar and the crowds were great and the pizza from the Newstead Community Garden was incredible.
You can relive some of the great moments at NSST 2015 here at the Newstead Short Story Tattoo Sound Cloud account where you will hear Clementine Ford in conversation with Neil Boyack, as well as Christos Tsiolkas reading from “Merciless Gods”, and the insightful Dr Patrick Johnston speaking about the concept of “diagnosis”. Another highlight was O. Spaniel Murray’s excellent reading of his classic story “The Ferret King’s Song” at the Fire Stories session. There are many more recordings available here. Feel free to share these great works.
Look out for our Newstead Short Story Tattoo “presents” event in August as part of Words in Winter, as well as other events and happenings ongoing. Like us on Facebook to get regualr updates and news from the magical world of storytelling, words and Newstead Short Story Tattoo.
